Whether selling, managing, negotiating, planning, collaborating, pitching, instructing-or on your knees with a marriage proposal-the secret of success is based on connecting with other people. Now that connection is infinitely easier to make through Nicholas Boothman's program of rapport by design.

How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less is the work of a master of Neuro-Linguistic Programming whose career is teaching corporations and groups the secrets of successful face-to-face communication. Aimed at establishing rapport - that stage between meeting and communicating - How to Make People Like You focuses on the concept of synchrony. It shows how to synchronize attitude, synchronize body language, and synchronize voice tone so that you instantly and imperceptibly become someone the other person likes. Reinforcing these easy-to-learn skills is knowing how to read the other person's sensory preferences-most of us are visual, some are kinesthetic, and a minority are auditory. So when you say "I see what you mean" to a visual person, you're really speaking his language. Along the way the book covers attitude, nervousness, words that open a conversation and words that shut it down, compliments, eye cues, the magic of opposites attracting, and more. It's how to make the best of the most important 90 seconds in any relationship, business or personal.

If You Have No Children, Who Will Care For You When You’re Old? | Sonia Sodha

Few of us are immune from the anxiety that can quickly set in when we contemplate our own ageing. Who will be there for us when us can no longer physically take care of ourselves? Who will be around to remind us of who we were in our moments of lucidity when our minds have started slipping away? For those of us who don’t have children, these questions take on a particular significance. I had mixed feelings after watching Still Alice, an Oscar-winning depiction of early-onset dementia. It made for grim viewing. But it was easy to imagine the ways it could have been even grimmer: what if the p

Despite ‘Friends’ Like Alexa And Siri, We’re Still Lonely

Despite the increasing popularity of humanized products like Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, and iRobot’s pet-like Roomba vacuum, people have never reported feeling more alone or isolated. This raises an interesting question: are these anthropomorphic products capable of fulfilling social needs typically fulfilled by interacting with actual people—and if so—at what cost? To tackle the question, researchers conducted four experiments and found evidence consistent with the phenomenon. Consumers…should know that this kind of interaction may thwart their motivation to engage with real people. “Socia

Every Company Has A Secret Product

Jason Fried IF YOUR COMPANY MAKES four products, it really makes five. If it makes 12, it makes 13. Even companies that make just one thing actually make two. The secret product? The company itself. Your company is a product. Who are its customers? Your employees, who use it to do their jobs. Since your company is the product that makes all of your other products, it should be the best product of all. When you begin to think of your company this way, you evaluate it differently. You ask different questions about it. You look at improving it constantly, rather than just accepting what it’s b
